Shipshape East Anglia (SEA) acts as a focal point bringing together over 50 boat building companies and specialist suppliers across the region, as well as a range of vessels on the National Register of Historic Vessels. The SEA network is focussed around activities at a central hub as part of a Coastal Communities funded scheme, located at the International Boatbuilding Training College (IBTC) Lowestoft, which incorporates facilities from the adjacent Excelsior Trust yard.
